    I assume that the hover over action would give you this as it does on all the other graphs:

    So excited! Love the update. Glad you guys are taking the time to make sure it works, for sure. Imagine the backlash if it didn’t... personally, I’m in. (And fingers crossed I get selected for NSI) hehe

    Just posted that on our FaceBook. Hope you don't mind @slewrock1 - I did give you image credit.

    Reagents are as easy as unscrewing the empty and screwing on the new.
    I do not believe there is an alert until it would take more additive than is allowed in order to keep the tank at the chosen set point.
    Right now the Apex can, based on other feedback data, turn off your DOS if you wish to configure that.

    We do not have any plans for a special shelf as there is too much variety in how people will use this in their sump or under tank or fish room.

    Not at the moment, but this idea was already floated by me to the engineering team to have a "last tested" and "next test @" time on the tile.

    Alk only, about 8 minutes. All three, about 20 minutes.

    Wouldn't it be visible in the results of the tests?

    Do you have weight and dimensions of the bottom published anywhere? Would be super simple to design a 3D printed bracket.

    We can do Alk only? I thought it had to do all three each time.

    No, 4 Alk, 2MG, 2Ca each day is the minimum testing.

    So sometimes it will just be Alk being tested.

    The size of the bottles of each reagent will likely be different since the shelf life of all 3 is supposedly 2 months.

    Not sure
    Depends on if it starts to dose to keep it where its at
    Or if there is a max and min value that it will stay between.

    Im curious. Maybe I can shoot for 8.5 and Apex will adjust at 8.2 and stop at 8.8.
    Cant wait to fiddle with this thing!!

    I am not going to give much more detail at this time on the dosing methodology, interface, etc as this is still being refined.

    For someone that asked, all three bottles are the same size.

    Best practice would be for people to indicate employee status when posting on topics related to their job. That being said, can you imagine the harassment employees might get on forums while they enjoy the hobby? Prob no perfect solution to this... But nice to see the neptune guys love their reefs and their Co. :)

    I was thinking about this just now when answering the thread on how to make R2R better by saying I wish there were less anonymity.

    If people (quite possibly rightly so) want to know if there is a direct affiliation of a person to a business in the hobby, I think it is just as reasonable that the average Joe should not be able to hide behind the veil of a anonymous handle. Why not require a real identity - just like when you go to a trade event in person?

    This is off topic so let’s not hash it out here; but if someone feels this is an important discussion, please create the thread, post the link here, and I will participate. I would love to even hear feedback from @revhtree

    This question just popped in my head . Will you be able to “off set “ the numbers if they’re running a tad high to say someone’s favorite Alk/C/Mg test ? I know from using KHD it was consistent but reading high (example KHD 9.2 to Hanna 8.6) to my Hanna . I was able to ease the thought by off setting it a few
